One can argue that Huawei could be the number one manufacturer when it comes to the entry-level smartphone market. The company has released a wide variety of devices last year from entry-level to high-end smartphones carrying Huawei’s trademark competitive price tags.
And today the Chine-based company quietly announced another low-end device in the Ascend Y540, which is now available in the Netherlands for €100 (about $115).
The Ascend Y540 is the successor to the Ascend Y530 which was launched last year. Moving on the specs, the Ascend Y540 features a 4.5-inch display with 854 x 480 resolution, powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 200 dual-core processor clocked at 1.3GHz, has 1GB of RAM, 4GB of internal storage expandable up to 32GB via a microSD card slot, a 5MP/0.3MP camera combo, and a 1,950mAh battery. And as most low-end smartphones, the Huawei Ascend Y540 is made out of plastic, and has no 4G LTE support. One upside though is that the device will be running on Android 4.4 KitKat out of the box with Huawei’s skin on top of it.
The Huawei Ascend Y540 is expected to roll-out on other parts of Europe as well and we’ll keep you updated wether it will be available on other regions as well.
